I am new to jsf.
Creating sample application of spring with jsf.
I have following code in jsp
<%@ taglib uri="" prefix="h" %>
<%@ taglib uri="" prefix="f" %>

<title>enter your name page</title>
<h:outputText value="JSF 1.2 Tutorial"/>
  <h:form id="UserEntryForm">
    <h:outputText value="Enter Your Name:"/>
    <h:inputText value="#{UserBean.userName}" />
    <h:commandButton type="submit" action="welcome" value="OK" />

when I see view source it is showing  following output
<form id="UserEntryForm" name="UserEntryForm" method="post" action="/inputname.jsf" enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded">

I am not gettting how action is coming as  inputname.jsf?

action is coming as  inputname.jsf -> This is so that the form postbacks to itself

<h:commandButton type="submit" action="welcome" value="OK" />

You are not specifying an action method. So JSF does a form postback.

It should be a method in your backing bean.
